Making the Most of Your [Many] Medications with Dr. Emily Peron from VCU
Managing medications is not an easy task, especially for people with Parkinson’s disease and their care partners. Dr. Peron will share strategies to help take the guesswork out of managing complex medication regimens and maximize the time spent with members of your medical team, including your pharmacist. Although she cannot offer individual treatment recommendations, Dr. Peron is always happy to provide referrals and resources. She encourages audience members to ask questions and share their insights for the benefit of the group.
Emily P. Peron, PharmD, MS, is an Associate Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Pharmacy. Dr. Peron attended a training program for pharmacists interested in Parkinson’s disease in 2009, identified a drug-induced tremor in her grandfather in 2010, and has been working with individuals with movement disorders ever since. Dr. Peron earned her Doctor of Pharmacy from Butler University and completed clinical residency training in geriatrics at the Cleveland VA Medical Center. She went on to earn her Master of Science in Clinical Research while completing a research fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh. She currently serves as a consultant for the VCU Health Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Center and is a member of the Parkinson’s Foundation Aware in Care Committee.
